Subject: Decent audience recording.
Although Jerry's voice is very rough throughout, he is very enthusiastic and his playing makes up for his brutal voice.
The show opens with an excellent Stranger that has an extended jam. C.C. Rider has a great bluesy jam with decent slide work as well as some great Brent and Jerry soloing. Cassidy is the other highlight of the first set. Everything ele is played well.
The second set starts off great with a very nice Scarlet that surprisingly segues into Hell in a Bucket. The set really heats up with the jam in Terapin and the energy continues until the set closes with a rousing Sugar Magnolia. The Spanish Jam that comes out of Space is excellent but very brief before segueing into a firey version of Truckin' that has an intense jam at the ending. The transition into Smokestack Lightning is flawless and this version showcases Bobby in top bluesy form. Black Peter is sweet and although Garcia sounds awful, his dying voice brings to life the titular character.
Overall some nice highlights, especially the second set, but the vocals are pretty bad.
Subject: Get this version; Scarlet
I had a wonderful time here, because I was with a great crowd of folks (thanks to Carter, Cooley, and others). Moreover, I was able to turn on my younger brother to the Dead during this run. There was a groundswell for the Dead among freaks at this time, and it was a pleasure to be part of it.
The show is full of energy, as is the crowd. With regard to the previous post regarding a version of Scarlet with equal burn, check out Scarlet > Fire from Hampton the year before (4/13/84). Jerry plays a fast strum lick during the solo that is unbelievable. Watching him hit this lick up close simply floored me.

Out to Lunch, to answer your question those stage screens had not become part of the backdrop in a standard 85 show. It was a pretty stripped-down looking setup at this time as I recall...

AUD searcher to 11/29/80 - Go Hither.

This is one of the better Audience recordings I have found. Pretty good for the technology available 20 years ago. The sound is decent and the levels are pretty stable. Better than most of the beat up cassette tapes I carried around for years.
The setlist is pretty interesting for 1985 - Scarlet > Hell in a Bucket = different. All of us old Navy guys cheered alot during Ship Of Fools.
A good choice now that the SBDs are gone.
Subject: Check it out
This one is good. A little peaky on the loudest passages, but otherwise decent sound.
Show- Excellent first set and long second set for an 85 show. And unusual too. A worthy member of the heralded 1985 collection
Subject: Good audience recording
Subject: TYPICAL HAMPTON
Subject: Mind Left Body?
Subject: Great sound quality, but marginal show,..
Interesting Scarlet>Bucket though... Most of the show lacks lots of cohesiveness (SP?).
I am being generous by giving this one a three. Sound quality os more like a 4-5, but I'd really rate this show the best a 3.
There are many better shows from 85 than this one...
